WHAT WE DO
Specialist social housing plays a vital part in people’s lives.
Individuals with specialist support and care needs including autism, dementia, physical and learning disabilities rely on it to live independently.
But as it stands, many of them are living in housing that simply isn’t fit for purpose. And we’re on a mission to fix that.
We design, fund and develop specialist social housing which is let on Full Repairing and Insuring (FRI), inflation linked leases to local authorities, registered providers and charities.
We negotiate our leases directly, and develop our own properties, rather than acquire existing or ready-made investment portfolios which are often bought at a premium.
The margin that’s usually paid to middlemen is instead used to improve the design, specification and quality of our homes to offer competitive and sustainable rents to our customers.
This approach also enables our investors to benefit from the value created along with the long-term, government funded, inflation linked secure income.
We’re also saving the tax payer money, too. On average, each specialist supported housing place saves the government £10,000 per annum compared to a residential care placement and almost £100,000 per annum when compared to inpatient care.
So, you could say it’s better for everyone.
